    vendor not paying - 2 weeks

    He needs to be paid properly as per LCA prevailing wage. If employer doesn't pay, file WH4.
  3. If you leave US while H1b petition is in process, the H1b petition will be nullified. H1b transfer is nothing but H1b extension with different employer. At the time of H1b extension, if they don't find you in US, they don't find anything to extend the H1b transfer nullifies. This holds true for any kind of COS, extensions.

    How late into H1b tenure can i initiate GC?

    You should have GC initiated at least before 18 months before end of 6 years H1b quota. More delay means more chances of leaving US after 6 years quota. This 6 years quota includes the 'out of US' days too in 6 years.

    Dropbox followed up by 221g

    Thanks for replies. Finally, my wife and I returned back to US yesterday. On 8th day of interview, the ceac case status changed from 'admin processing' to 'issued'. While the 'passport status' was still showing 'ready to deliver', called the VFS guys and asked for bluedart tracking number. At 3:00pm tracked that the passport was reached at bluedart location at 2pm. Went to bluedart location and received the PP with proper visa, just a day ago scheduled return flight.
  6. Hi, This query is for my wife. She dropped H1b stamping documents via dropbox in US embassy Delhi and then received passport with 221g asking to "appear for interview". She appeared for interview and visa officer said that your visa is approved. Its been 1 week from interview and the CEAC online passport status says "Admin Processing". We have return flight scheduled this Friday. Wanted to know some suggestions of insights about timeline from experienced or experts. How much time it takes in general for the similar case?

    Concurrent H1B

    All H1bs are independent. You can have multiple H1b petitions approved at a time. Its legal. No need to inform other employers. Just make sure your current employer might has a clause that you cannot work for any other company at the same time as they are paying for those hrs. Again, its not related to immigration laws. Its comes under general Labor Laws.
  8. Your new H1b documents should reach USCIS within 60 days of termination date. Else, you need to leave US or file COS to another visa status such as F2/H4. Also, being laid off on H1b, you are entitled to get one person- one way air ticket to home country. This is apart from Severance Package.

    Am I under cap-exempt?

    You are eligible for cap exempted H1b with these two options: 1. H1b for (6 years - time spent on H1b in US). 2. Up to 3 years of H1b extension based on I140 if I140 is still active.
  10. "I want to know if I'm allowed to take up any commission based part-time jobs in addition to my existing full-time job." This part time job should be authorized by H1b too.
  11. As suggested multiple time, you shouldn't resign till next H1b is completely approve. Let them file in regular processing and wait for months for approval. Meanwhile find a better employer and tell the other employer that "things have been changed meanwhile".

    H1B apply 2 times

    Yes, another employer can file new H1b for him next year.
  13. There is nothing called H1b transfer. If you already have counted towards quota, new employer can file cap exempted H1b for you no matter where in world you are.
  14. Get H4 with his current H1b employer. Better to wait till his current is approved completely. Do it in PP.

    H1B Withdrawal

    You cannot transfer your first H1b before Oct 1st. If you do, your granted H1b will be nullified and you need to participate in random selection again next time (if happens).
